Welcome to The Playful Child
Explorations in the
Creative Play Studio
What is the Creative Play Studio?
Play builds brains! This curiosity-provoking, and uniquely curated collection of materials will have your child deeply engaged in the richness and brilliance of brain-sparking play.
Your child is invited into a calm environment where natural and engaging materials are presented in beautiful settings that invite open-ended explorations emerging from the creative imagination of your child. Our studio space offers your child the freedom to explore and learn without traditional programming structures, visual overstimulation, and adult-directed agendas.
The Creative Play Studio is fresh, new, and full of endless possibilities for your child to develop and grow through play!
Why Creative Play Matters
We offer a different kind of play experience, one where the whole being of your child is nurtured ~ a place where playful, literacy-rich experiences ignite the emotional, social, physical, and cognitive layers of the brain. It is a place where we combat play deficits that deprive children of the opportunity to learn empathy, respect, kindness, and solid friendships.
Creative Play Studio is a place where the social-emotional wellness of your child is at the heart of all we do, helping to reduce stress, anxiety, and the dramatic decline in free play. Through open-ended opportunities, the authentic spirit of your child flows from within.
Emerging from the heart, mind, body, and spirit of your little one, you’ll see a transformation where essential skills for lifelong learning, foundational to language development, critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, and self-expression unfold authentically through play.
Your Child Will Flourish!
Your child will thrive alongside other children as they build relationships and share open-ended play experiences that cultivate a culture of freedom that empowers your child to bloom from where they are at. Creative Play Studio is designed to breed confidence, nurture self-worth, foster self-esteem, encourage a positive attitude, and spark a growth mindset.
Through inspiring encounters, your child will develop friendships and a sense of belonging as they actively contribute to a learning community grounded in play. Your child will gather with friends, teachers, and educators to co-construct new ideas as they uncover new thinking and understandings, invest as much in their own learning as they do in others’ learning, and become an active participant in our collaborative community.
Considering the abundance of research that proves that play builds brains and supports the holistic growth and development of young children, we invite you and your little one to a childhood reimagined here at The Playful Child!
